Alley Cat!

I became interested in a scavenger hunt/race by bike, also called an Alley Cat. I knew we wouldn't win or even place on the podium, but it was something FUN to do on a bike. Anna Lena, the organizer gave us 20 riddles to solve for locations around Pittsburgh. We were able to ride to 12 of them, take a picture of our bikes there and text them back to her. There was also a bingo card to try and fill out finding things around the city like: "Mullet" "Car parked in a bike lane" "Pedestrian wearing a PGH sports jersey."
28 miles and much fun. I enjoyed running into others along the route.

Anna Lena splains the rules.
